Preços para produtos Embora a maioria das empresas gaste o tempo necessário para obter uma compreensão completa dos cálculos de preços para seus negócios domésticos, muitos não colocam o mesmo esforço quando se trata de seus mercados de exportação.

My worst nightmare by JD I entered the room to shake hands with an older man and a younger woman. The guy was the most evil person ever. It was only a 20 minute interview, but somehow he terrified me so much that he almost made me cry. First, he asked me why I was interested in working in DC (besides the fact that I am from the area). I was like “Well, you know, I like being in a big city, working alongside or near the federal government and g...

Let’s be honest. We all knew that the majestic, beige paper with our names and JD written in fancy letters comes with a price tag. NOT THIS JD THIS JD Complain all we want about how law schools duped us all, but at the end of the day, even with greater transparency with regard to employment and salary stats, quite a few of us would have signed up anyway with ambitions of high grades and dream jobs. However, one very significant cost, which at ...

The ABA Guidelines limit a law student’s ability to work more than 20 hours a week as a full time student. With tuition on the rise and many low-income applicants already suffering as a result, an additional limitation on the ability for students to earn money while studying would only add insult to injury.  Without the sprinkling down of ubiquitous scholarships, most students face crippling debt. Take the example of a working single mom who f...

Saiba quais são as vantagens da importação de produtos
Import / 22 de outubro de 2017

Vantagens da importação Importar um produto pode render uma economia de milhares de reais. Isso por que o custo real de um produto fabricado no exterior é baixo. O preço que vemos nas lojas do Brasil está sempre superfaturado por conta dos altos impostos e das altas margens de lucro que os lojistas, representantes e distribuidores acrescentam às mercadorias. Sendo assim, ao importar um produto você estará cortando uma grande parte da...

The Socratic Teaching Method – What the Clunk?
Law School Reform / 27 de agosto de 2017

I’ve had a couple (more than a couple…let’s say countless) conversations with law students about their classroom experience and the Socratic Teaching Method. Common words affiliated with their experiences are: HUMILIATION Fear of HUMILIATION Anxiety before facing HUMILIATION Confusion after HUMILIATION Crying in class leading to further HUMILIATION Anger hours later after processing public HUMILIATION Frustration knowing that next cl...

“Med Schooled”
Law School Reform / 27 de agosto de 2017

Dear Law Schooled,   Roughly speaking, medical school consists of two halves: The first half is learning theory in the classroom, and the second half practice in the hospital ward. In the first year of medical school, you learn about the normal body and its function, with courses bearing names such as Gross Anatomy, Physiology, Biochemistry, and Immunology. By the second year, the curriculum shifts focus to things that can go wrong w...

Looks like Fudge to Me: Law School Employment Data
Law Schooled Evolution / 27 de agosto de 2017

A recent Faculty Lounge post on the correlation between prestige and paying law students “fellowships” to help boost employment data shows some eye-popping numbers to say the least.  Call me naïve but in the first place, I had no idea that law schools were fudging their employment data by actually paying their students to work for them.  My guess is that schools are dishing out money for the “out of luck” students to be researchers w...

The Value of International Students in Law School
Law School Reform / 27 de agosto de 2017

“Our world continues to become more global”.  ”We live in a global world”.  ”Globalization is an undeniable reality”. Considering the far-reaching effects of technology and its ability to shrink the globe, law schools need to prepare students not just for the “real world” but for the “globalized world”. What does this mean? It means law schools ought to consider the value of internationalizing schools.  It means law schools need to f...

Big Girl Lawyer Uniforms
Law Schooled Evolution / 27 de agosto de 2017

When I was an undergraduate student, I worked in jobs that required uniforms.  Uniforms that involved scratchy polo shirts and black GAP pants that made my hips look like Venus of Willendorf.  Uniforms that routinely were covered in French fry grease, bleach, and whatever hell-vomit came out of the toilet I was supposed to be unclogging that day.  I was, in short, a fast food service employee. There were many days when I was elbow-de...

Students have a right to be heard
Law School Reform / 27 de agosto de 2017

In the last Law Schooled podcast, student podcasters ask:  Should Law Students Get to Have a Say in Legal Education Reform?  While the podcasters provide valid reasons for why we should “have a say”, they don’t go far enough. We students have the right to be heard, and we should be active in shaping our own law school experiences and the direction of legal education reform. WHY? 1. We are consumers of a good.  That good is our law sc...
